Hallowe'en Party 31 Oct in The Log Cabin, Verdun's Garden

Posted: 26/10/2014 at 23:09

I am on my way direct route across country in my tank, that should refurbish a few gardens. Dressed as the wise old FLESH eating Owl, any one for BBQ mouse. My gift will be a load of Newcastle Brown Ale, do not drink the stuff myself since it is made in Gateshead??? A wee drop from the burns o'er yon border, the water of life, why? it puts me to sleep so better enjoy the party first.

Kef, lunch menu, Gammon with a honey and mustard glaze added the last tem minutes, I make it with English mustard not that floppy French stuff. Leeks Carrots Cabbage Beans all done in the steamer, Roast and Mashed potato with plenty of butter, and of course Yorkshire puddings and onion gravy. Any room left, Cornish ice cream and fruit. My ice cream will be around seven tonight when the lunch has had time to digest.

Dreams can seem real Kef, well they do to me, all welcome I always have an extra plate ready in the warmer.

I am up for Camelot as long as I get the kitchen and some serf's to help peel everything. Half a cow on a spit anyone.

My Sunday lunch is dead on 13:00, I do the cooking and those invited are told it is on the table at one and only warm after that if the bin is on fire, they get the message. I have automatic clocks that correct the time at two in the morning, not that I wake up and watch, I will be away in my dreams to Dancing the Waltz with Joan in Vienna in a crowded room on an empty floor, boy did we show them. Wish it was still possible.


blueberries plant and heathers in the same pot

Goathland on the North York's Moors is where I spent a lot of my childhood heather and Bilberries as we knew them grew well together, we harvested the bilberries and I never forgot the taste. The heather got burned off every few years and the bilberries still came. Leave them for now and pot them on alone into a bigger pot another year as I doubt they will fruit this year.

Morning Verdun on this lovely warm morning at 08:45 though it will be afternoon where you are "err" I think. New I-pad, nice, don't see the need for me to have one as my new touch screen laptop never leaves the house anyway but enjoy. I am investing in a Kindle to read and I-tunes although I do have I-tunes on here. The Gammon roast is ready to go in the oven once up to room temperature with some good Cornish ice cream when the Grandchildren arrive only the best for them.

Caroline for me, Scott has to go even Judy was more entertaining. I am on the point of asking for Bruce back, no I have not taken a turn for the worse, they are annoying me.

"what did I say" asks Verdun? What ever it was provided us all with a good giggle, well that is the girls us lads a belly laugh, with the reminder of the months to come we need it.

Do not worry Runnybeak, we have his number, he will be out foxed by the posters on here, a crafty lot of mud pluggers, he could find his garden covered in china clay and think it has snowed.

Bob I find the best way to prune is with a chain saw, level with the ground does nicely. Verdun from his troglodyte position in the mine hewing pots probably never sees daylight living on Oggies will not help, they eat the handles and throw the rest away.
